The Evolution of Content Curation

The Evolution of Content Curation | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Up until a few weeks ago I had a Content Curation methodology I was happy with, then something changed.

 

Part of successful Blogging is reading a lot, and I mean a lot. I have often got 2 or 3 books on the go. I’m scanning Twitter and Google+ hourly, I subscribed to some key source newsletters, download white-papers and have hundreds of feeds in Google Reader.


As well as Blogging, it’s part of my day job to ensure I am aware of the latest trends online.

TimeSpan for iPhone is a beautiful way to count down to milestones

TimeSpan for iPhone is a beautiful way to count down to milestones | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Somewhere between ToDo lists and calendarappointments lies TimeSpan. You can think of it as a way to keep track of important periods of time, reminders with a tail, whatever, but basically the app allows you to mark off segments of time when the beginning and end are important.
A common use for this might be to mark off a working period, or a break period. If you’re a freelancer that needs to be reminded when you’ve worked a certain number of hours, for instance, you can do that with TimeSpan....

Add your Facebook stream to Google+ with this browser extension

Add your Facebook stream to Google+ with this browser extension | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
You have your Google+ invite and have been enjoying the new features that Google has been making available to you. Adding another social network to your existing Facebook and Twitter accounts, it can be difficult to prioritize your updates amongst your networks.

Some users have manually entered their updates manually across networks, others have employed their own ways to share.

Tutorial: How To Install WordPress

Tutorial: How To Install WordPress | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
WordPress is a great solution for people in need of a website or blog, though installing WordPress can be a bit tricky. Luckily for many people, hosting providers are beginning to roll out one button installs of WordPress Joomla, Drupal and more.

The down side of this is it can take quite awhile for them to be created, and let’s be honest, it’s just not as fun.

Readings is a clever way to read news from any author or publisher

Readings is a clever way to read news from any author or publisher | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Readings is a super slick site that lets you follow news from any publisher or author and read it in style. At first glance, it’s sort of like Facebook meets Google Reader, but it looks much better than either one.

The basic concept is that you can choose to follow a publisher, like The Next Web, or an individual author, like me! Then, Readings will go out and grab the content from that publisher or writer and display it in a clean, easy to read digest style. You can sort by time, plow through articles in groupings that are sorted by popularity and save items for later reading...
